"Secret Oath" as written by and Nicholas Edward/beck Thomas....
I'm rackin' my brain
Trying to comprehend
How, for some unknown reason, our status will remain as friends
I'm destroying my mind
Trying to understand how with little to no effort
You've got me eating out of the palms of your hands

There was not a single spark
When my lips landed on yours in the dark,
But regardless of what happens next
You're my beloved, you just don't know it yet

Tonight I made a secret oath
To keep chasing after you
And I am not going to stop
Whether you like it or not

We're murdering our lives
Trying to make it work,
But you and I both know that we are a lost cause
And nothing more than specks on this Earth

There was not a single spark
When my lips landed on yours in the dark,
But regardless of what happens next
You're my beloved, you just don't know it yet

Tonight I made a secret oath
To keep chasing after you
And I am not going to stop
Whether you like it or not

Tonight I made a secret oath
To keep chasing after you
And I am not going to stop
Whether you like it or not

Yeah I know you listen to this all alone up in your room
I know you love how all this music's about you

    General CommentI'm thinking this song was written about a certain person as if he was talking to that person at the end when he says I know you listen to this all alone up in your room, I know you love how all this music's about you.

    General Commentsome parts make me think that its about 2 people and how they may have thought they had something. but "There was not a single spark
    when my lips landed on yours in the dark"...there isn't anything there, but he wants to keep trying..yaa

    General CommentI think hes trying to say shes not feeling anything but he is...there was no spark between "them" but he knows there could be if he just keeps chasing after her.

    General CommentThis song talks about a romance that didn't work out or it wouldn't work out. He talks about how they have kissed but she didn't feel anything from the kiss. He says that they are meant to be and he made a "secret oath" to himself to get with this girl at any costs. I used to be able to relate to this song but not anymore. This is a wonderful song

    General Commenti'm in absolute awe with this song.

    it relates to the terrible situation i'm in exactly.
    i'm wasting my time chasing after someone when i know the relationship wouldn't work out, and we could always be just friends, but i love him too much to give up.
